A Few Critters From Last Night

Recommended Posts

Got these 2 last night out of the same tree about an hour apart. Went out at first with the "wife" spooked a fox coming into the field so I threw the caller down tried to get it back in and ended up getting 2 doe and a opossum to come to red fox rally and luscious lips on the foxpro ??? The opossum made it about 150yds from us and was standing at the edge of a huge puddle trying to figure out how to cross it and that's where it met a 20gr game point from the 17hmr. Never got the fox to stop or come back in and I wasn't about to make a 200yd running shot on a fox with an HMR.

After that we crossed the field and into the small woods by the creek and I caught eyes up in the tree which is what we went for so I set up the fox pro again hit raccoon distress and got him to poke his head out between a bunch of branches. couldn't get a good shot on him so I moved around trying to find a clear shot so I switched to raccoon fight and that got him to come out a bit more giving me shoulders on up to aim at with no branches in the way bang flop. Then we seen more eyes in the same tree but it wasn't having any part of us just took one peek and was done.

Seen 2 more after that but couldn't get any shots by that time me and the "wife" were at each others throats fighting and yes I took the women I'm divorcing out hunting and gave her a loaded weapon we were trying to work things out again.

I went dropped her off got into a huge argument then headed back out to the woods and headed right for the spot I shot the first coon. Didn't see eyes when first approached but I knew there was one in the area so I put the call down started the decoy up and hit coon distress.......3 minutes nothing shows so I hit coon fight and instantly another big male comes tearing around the back side of the tree and starts running down the tree I shot him bang flop coon number 2 for the night on the ground.

Nice kills and meal with the rabbit!! What are you going to do with the possum and coons? Sorry to hear about your divorce. Any by chance it does work out? Sorry if I'm getting in your business but I pray it works out if that what y'all want.

The coons I gave to my nephew and his buddy they got 17 the other night or so they say but they have the stretchers and everything I just skin em and freeze em till I get a pile then take em to the fur buyer. The opossum I just left for coyote bait I'm going back out tonight.

And the divorce working out not likely she cheated while I was deployed and were tryin to work things out like start fresh so I'm living with my mom but the other day I stoped in to get diapers for my son an the guy was there so clearly she's still ya know. She says they were just talking but I'm not buying it so I told her I need some time to find my self. I will never e able to trust her so looks like more hunting and fishing time with out interruption.

Man I'm sorry to hear. That has to be tough and hurtful. Hopefully y'all can come to an agreement or be on level ground with everything especially with the kids sake and yours. I pray for the best and everything works out whatever the choice is that you make. I didn't think about coyote bait. I wish you luck tonight!

They let you shoot stuff and let it lay? I thought that was called wanton waste?

 

Also didnt know that you could shoot rabbits at night with a light?
